What causes my dizziness and vertigo?

Commonly defined by the broad term of vertigo: A sensation of lightheadedness, faintness, or unsteadiness. Feeling as though the room is spinning around you or that you are spinning up/down or side to side. Other symptoms include headache, ringing in ears (tinnitus), or nausea. These symptoms often increase as we age.

 

80% of individuals with complaints of vertigo have an inner ear disorder. Most commonly Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV) or when our inner ear crystals or otoliths become stuck in a different part of a semicircular canal and often the most common complaint is positional dizziness/nausea such as when lying down or turning over in bed.

 

However vertigo complaints can be caused by other issues other than the inner ear such as due to medication, anxiety, or our central nervous system or brain from previous stroke or tumors.

 

Therefore it is important to see either a vestibular specialist or your doctor to help determine the underlying cause of your dizziness.
